Item #: SCP-435
Object Class: Safe
Special Containment Procedures: See description.
Description: SCP-435 is transient and can only be found if it is not actively being looked for. The item has not shown any hostility whatsoever towards subjects interacting with it. It was discovered during the construction of an office building on the outskirts of Lawrenceville, Georgia. SCP-435 currently resides inside the building, which has since been completed.
The item has been noted to function in stages. When encountered, SCP-435 stops the person who encountered it from moving. It then reads the person's most recent thought. Should the thought be toward the desire of an object, SCP-435 manifests as something resembling the desired object.
SCP-435 has never appeared twice to the same person nor taken the same form twice. It does not manifest as anything malevolent and it has not been reported to appear as large objects . The item can not be found if it is being actively looked for; however, prior knowledge of it seemingly excludes an individual from finding it.
[Note 1: The largest recorded manifestation of the item to date, a tool chest, measured 6' x 3' x 1.5'. This, obviously, does not imply that SCP-435 couldn't appear as something larger.]
Addendum: Those with Level 2 Security Clearance or higher should see Document #435-A.
Document #435-A: Item Oddities
The item has not been encountered in over two years. This could be due to it returning to its own plane, or due to general staff knowledge leading to them semi-consciously searching for it. Active testing of SCP-435 is impossible to carry out due to the nature of the encounter circumstances.
